At their annual holiday luncheon on Thursday, Shoreline School District employees brought toys for the Holiday Baskets toy drive and collected cash, which was given to the Shoreline Firefighters to purchase toys and gift cards.

The Firefighters hold a toy drive every year for the Shoreline PTA Council Holiday Baskets, toys, and teen gift card drive. This year, the firefighters added the children in Mary's Place shelter to their giving.

The annual fire toy drive at Fred Meyer last Saturday did not garner the usual number of toys and the department has appealed to the community for toy and cash donations, to be delivered to any fire station in Shoreline by Friday, December 14, 2018.

One in four children in Shoreline Schools are considered homeless and/or food insecure.

For over 35 years the Shoreline PTA Council and the Shoreline Fire Department and their partners Hopelink, Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park, the City of Shoreline, and Dale Turner Family YMCA have come together to put on the Holiday Baskets drive.

Food and gifts will be distributed on Saturday, December 15, 2018 to families who are registered for the event.
